Jan Muchow, anybody

So my daily listening of international broadcasters recently included a Radio Prague interview with Jan Muchow, a musician who for the last 20 years has been composing film scores for Czech movies. Muchow talks a bit about the process, about other film composers, and some about the rest of his musical life.

Radio Prague's individual features always seem to have a transcript, which is nice, and there's a standalone MP3 so that you don't have to listen to the whole half-hour broadcast if you don't want to. And of course you can just listen to streaming audio. The MP3 is here (6.3 MB, about 12 minutes).

Unsurprisingly, I'd never heard of Muchow, but then I don't pay that much attention to film composers and especially not contemporary composers.
